We are using TEI with a homegrown ontology for the Tang Knowledgebase
Project here in Kyoto. We do quite similar things (e.g. linking from
<name> and other elements) and are also using TopicMap technology. We
are working with texts, rather than bibliographies, so the association
is in most cases not immediately derived from the context.
At the moment, one of the headaches is a software environment for
maintaining this stuff and so we are at the beginning of developing
our own stuff with eXist and some Java libraries. I would be very
interested to hear what kind of s/w environment other projects are
using. We did try the OKS Suite from Ontopia, but it choked on some
of the larger topicmaps.
All the best,
